There are various laws governing the earth and one of which is the law of reciprocity. Often times, people are never satisfied with an outcome and blame it on nature or bad luck, but we all seem to forget that most times we get what or similar to what was sowed.
Life is a very fertile ground and whoever sows good seeds would likely harvest good or even better fruits. Even though the law of reciprocity is so evident in our daily lives, somewhere along the way we have ignored it.
Do you remember the physical law that states that; for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In other words, the first criterion is making an effort.
This law is seen on a daily basis in our lives. For instance, have you noticed what happens when you frown to the attendants of stores you buy goods from? More often than not, they never smile at you.
When you socialize and become friendly with neighbours, they in turn become sociable and friendly. For something to manifest out of another, there would have been an initial sowing.
What is the harvest you are expecting? As a guardian or superior what is that attitude (seed) you display (cultivate) for your children or subordinate to learn from?
We must train ourselves in the utility of this law in every aspect of our lives; give unselfishly, help lovingly etc.
Whatever you do today be rest assured that with same measure you give in service to others, it would be measured back to you.
